you have NO right to smoke...NONE....so stop crying about it......smokers always compare cigs to alcohol, junk food, or drugs....NO COMPARISON!!!!
Alcohol gets YOU drunk and messes up YOUR body, the same as junk food and drugs...sure the effects of them could lead to an accident where others may
get hurt but they do not directly effect others the way cigs do.
As soon as you light up, us non-smokers have to smell that *SNIP*, and breath it in WITHOUT choice....no matter how hard you TRY to keep it away from
us....if i want your drink of alcohol I have to come over and take it, your nasty cig air is unavoidable. So stop with this our right to smoke
stuff.....if you want a place to smoke...take your money and others smokers money and build SMOKERS buildings. Inside there you and all your fellow
smokers can smoke, joke, eat, smoke some more etc....

we'd probably put up the money to build ourselves a nice little "clubhouse" and a bunch of anti-smokers would sue to be allowed in, then they'd
start griping about the shs....
as far as the rest of your rant....
perfume, detergents, and the like have many of the same chemicals that are within cigarettes, with the same affects to health....so, maybe we should
all stop making ourselves, our homes, our cars, and our clothes smelling pretty also?
indoor pools have the same negative effects as shs if used on a regular basis. my son was asthmatic when he was a kid, and he did complain about it
being hard for him to breathe when he was in the pool....didn't stop the school from forcing him in it so they could teach him to swim!!!
and oh, ya.....they are finding the smog in some of the larger cities are doing MORE DAMAGE than second hand smoke could ever do to kid's
and let's not discuss the work conditions people are forced to work in 8 or more hours a day, 5 or more days a week for that paycheck, shall we?
in plain simple words, the people and business around us are exposing us to all kinds of nasty stuff....why should this one little group over here
have special priveledge of changing the world because they have big mouths and happen to not like ONE of those sources for these substances?
you want fresh clean air, fine, I'll give ya fresh air, but then, ummm....hope you don't expect to drive your car anywhere, or have anything
printed, or be allowed to turn on your computer, or cook in your tupperware, or........
by the way, ya, I've went some time rolling my own cigs in protest of NY State Government after they told me that I couldn't smoke in a printshop
that already had air so bad in it it would kill any bird that happened to fly into the place. I was nice about it though, I wrote to them and told
them that they'd have to go without that taxmoney I was paying for every pack, and why they were gonna have to do without...also informed them that I
had quit my job and well, they'd have to go without that income also until I could find a job that had that clean air they were touting....
watching to see if the federal government decides to raise it again, so all those poor youngsters can have the healthcare so many of us adult
taxpayers have to go without...if they do, heck, I'll just start growing my own!
by the way....if you do a search for tobacco seeds, there's a few places that sells them
